This week the whole school has celebrated World Book day with a celebration of reading in all its forms.
The week began with a whole school assembly led by Miss Bartlett. The house teams competed in the ‘Guess the book’ quiz and tried to work out the favourite books of all of the members of staff.
On Wednesday, the Meadow and Woodland children had a wonderful ‘Rainbow Fish’ themed yoga session with Lucy, our Yoga teacher.
Throughout the week, all of the children had the chance to decorate a special bag with their favourite book cover.
On Thursday, the older children made storytelling shelters in the hall and then the children sat in small groups in the dens to enjoy some shared storytelling adventures with their favourite teddies, torches and books.
We also held our special World Book Day sale with Bronnie and Bob from The Bookwagon. They set up their sale in the school hall alongside the entries we had for our ‘Create a book character’ competition (see separate post). The sale was a huge success with many books sold to very excited children. We were also bought special books for our library by five families which is a wonderful gift to all of the children here.
The children were able to participate in some virtual author events over the week as well as listening to lots of wonderful stories in their classes.
The week finished with a sharing assembly around all of the wonderful stories which were enjoyed over the week and a parade of the new bags which were created.
